Stability Storage Studies


What are stability studies?

Stability studies are an important aspect of drug development and manufacturing. They involve testing the stability and durability of a drug product over time under various conditions such as temperature, humidity, light, and other factors that may affect its stability.

The purpose of stability studies is to evaluate the drug product’s stability, shelf-life, and degradation profile. The results of these studies are used to determine the appropriate storage conditions and expiration date for the drug product.

Stability studies are conducted throughout the drug development process, from early clinical trials to post-marketing surveillance. Regulatory agencies such as the FDA require that drug manufacturers provide data from stability studies as part of the product approval process.

Here are some reasons why a pharmaceutical or biotech company may choose to outsource their stability studies:

1. Cost Effectiveness: Outsourcing stability studies can be a cost-effective approach compared to conducting the studies in-house, as it reduces the need to invest in expensive analytical equipment and technology, and eliminates the need for dedicated personnel to conduct studies.

2. Expertise and Experience: Stability studies require highly specialized knowledge and expertise. Outsourcing can provide access to a pool of experienced personnel with the required expertise and knowledge to conduct stability studies efficiently and accurately.

3. Global Compliance: Stability studies are an essential component of drug development and regulatory compliance. Certified laboratories often have substantial experience with regulatory authorities and can ensure compliance with local and international regulations.

4. Faster Turnaround Time: Outsourcing stability studies can lead to faster turnaround time from sample preparation to report generation as CROs have the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel to complete the studies more efficiently.

5. Reduced Risk: Outsourcing stability studies reduces the risk of delays or errors that can arise due to lack of capacity, technical expertise, or other operational challenges. Additionally, stability storage and study facilities are often equipped with backup systems, disaster recovery plans, and other safety measures that can mitigate risks associated with conducting stability studies.
